wee folk by Ingrid

So I almost never buy fabric just for me.  To make something for myself.
But this week I bought this!
I'm so excited.  
Maybe I live under a rock, but I haven't seen much of this collection around blogland, but I think it's utterly fabulous and can't wait to start sewing on it.  
just have to finish up some other projects first.....

Some days I still sew!

Wow, summer is fun.  

So I've been spending most of my days at picnics
and at the pool
and running through bouncy houses
and occasionally I'm sewing...
but I rarely have time to write about it, it seems!
I hope you are doing well and having a lovely summer as well!

I did want to show you some blocks I finished up this week for a bee
Because I LOVED them SO MUCH!

and it was a lot of fun.  They are on their way to Kristin today.. 
can't wait to see what she makes out of them.

A few spots left in the Dotty For Dots Swap!

I have a few spots left in the Dotty for Dots swap, and I am anxious to fill them quickly!
Details below:

You will mail in to me:
20 5” squares from each of 4 polka-dot fabrics (for a total of 80 charm squares)
          So that means you buy ½ yard of 4 polka-dot fabrics and cut 20 5” squares of each of them.

And then you will receive in the mail:
80 5” charm squares of 80 different polka dot fabrics.

The details:
·       Comment on this post to claim your place in the swap.  Make sure I have a way to contact you.  If I reply to the comment and your e-mail comes up as "no-reply" then I'll have to remove you from the list.

·        Purchase ½ yard of 4 different polka dot fabrics.  All fabrics should be 100% cotton and quilt-store quality.

·        Use a rotary cutter to carefully cut 20 5” charm squares from each fabric.  

·        Mail in your charm squares to arrive to me no later than June 20. Please put your squares into a gallon-size Ziploc bag with your name, phone number and address written on the bag.   
In the bag, include $5 for return postage via Priority Mail flat-rate envelope.

Because this is a swap with a very quick turnaround, I'm limiting the participants to people in the continental United States.  But next time I'll be sure to include International participants.

To sign up, please leave a comment on this post or send me an e-mail to wendyleep at gmail dot com.
If you leave a comment, be sure that I have a way to contact you.

Destash (Very Nearly) Giveaway!

Friends, as fabric fell on my head when I opened the closet this morning, an idea hit me (literally).
I need to get rid of the fabric I'm not going to use.

So here's the deal.  I've packed up 3 of the postal service shoeboxes today.  If you will pay for shipping, I'll send the box to you.  Easy peasy!  I need to get these out quickly, so I'm limiting to US so that I can ship from my home.

BOX 1:
Box 1 contains non cotton fabrics.  I don't know the fabric content on these.  They are NOT quilting cottons.  The plaid and bears are a seersucker texture.  This box weighs  4.75 pounds.   It will be about $14 to ship it.

BOX 2:
Box 2 contains minkee-esque fabrics.  Some are larger than others. The pink on the left has some areas where the dots are not as pronounced as others.  I think all of these were purchased at either JoAnn's or Hobby Lobby.  This box weighs 3.5 pounds.  It will be around $12.50 to ship this box.  BOX 2 IS CLAIMED!

BOX 3:

Box 3 contains more minkee.  There is quite a bit of the green on the left.  This box weighs 2.75 pounds.  It will be around $10 to ship box 3.

Leave me a comment if you want one of these and we can work out the actual shipping cost and the details.  Make sure that I have a way to contact you.  First come, first serve... so let me know quickly if you want them.
